Originicon mutation.png

You were born with abilities which set you apart from the rest of humankind. Your powers manifested at birth, puberty, or possibly adulthood. Mutants are often viewed with awe and fear by those who don't understand them. This origin will give you access to Mutagen. This item has a very short range and deals minor Energy damage, as well as lowering the damage the affected target deals out.


Heroes and villains of mutant origin may only use mutant dual-origin or single-origin enhancements. Villains normally obtain mutant-origin enhancements from the Mutant Quartermasters. Some lower-level contacts also sell mutant-origin enhancements, but at an inflated cost.

The Mutagen Power

Mutant heroes and villains receive the Mutagen power.

Mutant Origin Titles

All heroes and villains have two opportunities to select titles for their character; once at level 15, and once at level 25. The second title is origin-specific.

Past Relevance

In the alpha version of City of Heroes, a hero's origin played a much bigger part of the game than it did upon the game's release.

Future Plans

There has been wide speculation that in the future, there may be missions specific to a hero's or villain's origin; however, these reports are currently unconfirmed.
